Voted? Here's how you can still claim cheaper chicken, grocery savings and free notepads
- Several companies are offering specials for South Africans who've voted.
- All you need to do is present your thumb.
- For more stories, go to Business Insider SA.
If you vote today, you can get free coffees, discounted chicken, grocery savings and free notepads.
Almost 27 million South Africans could vote today in the country’s sixth democratic elections - the biggest group in history.
All most companies require is an indelible-ink mark made on your thumb, made by Independent Election Commission (IEC) officials before you've voted.
Business Insider South Africa made a list of all the specials you can get once you’ve voted.
Free Coffee at Wimpy
As in previous elections, Wimpy outlets across South Africa are offering a free cup of coffee just for showing up and showing your thumb.
A cup of filter coffee typically costs R19.90 at Wimpy.
50% off chicken at Nando’s
Celebrating 25 years of democracy, Nando's is offering a quarter chicken with chips and a roll for only R25 until Thursday - a discount of roughly 50%. It is, however, limited to 300 meals per outlet.
Free notepad at PnA
The stationery retailer is offering voters a free notepad on presenting a marked thumb instore. The offer runs until Thursday.
42% of chicken at Galito’s
Like Nando’s, Galito’s is selling chicken and a roll for R25. Unlike the Nando's offer, Galito’s does not include chips in its deals.
Galito’s does not require clients to show proof of voting.
R40 voucher at Pick n Pay
Pick n Pay is offering SmartShopper customers a R40 discount on their next purchase between 9-12 May if they spend R400 or more at the retailer.
Free coffee at Mike's Kitchen
Like Wimpy, Mike’s Kitchen will give you a free cup of coffee in exchange for proof that you’ve voted. The offer is, however, only eligible to voters who also order a meal.
The offer is not valid at Mike's Kitchen in Parktown.
